In the year 2072, all that’s left of earth is a lot of dust, the remnants of our cities and structures, and Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) and Jack (Tom Cruise), the maintenance team just awaiting permission to come join the rest of humanity on a space station before they relocate to another planet. But, not all is as it seems in director Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron) latest sci-fi dystopia Oblivion. When a mysterious stranger crash lands on earth, Jack Harper begins to question everything he knows.
EW spoke with Kosinski about the world creation behind Oblivion, the state of the art technologies he used, and his love of Indiana Jones. Check out the interview below before you see the film, which opens in the US on Friday.
